someone forgot computers start counting at 0 and the code actually only reads the first 47(0-47)
Line 3: Line 3:  
'''boot0''' is the first-stage bootloader of the [[Starlet]] ARM core on board the [[Hollywood]]; it's contained in 4K of Mask ROM (only 1.5K of which is actually used).

It contains code to read the first 48 pages of the attached [[Hardware/NAND|NAND flash]], reserved for [[boot1]], decrypt them with a fixed AES key, hash them with {{hw|SHA-1 Engine}}, and compare the hash with a value read from {{hw|OTP}} memory. If the hashes do not match, the system will refuse to proceed to boot1, causing a brick. However, if the hash in OTP is all zeroes, then the system will always boot — this is true of development consoles and probably also during the manufacturing process.

The division between boot0/boot1 allows the RSA signature initialization and verification to be updated at the factory without rebuilding the Starlet core.
